What is Wood&Steel?

Wood&Steel began as a desire of Taylor co-founders Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug to create an informative communication channel between the company and the people who buy our guitars. Since its summer 1994 debut, our quarterly “owners newsletter” has evolved from its grassroots beginnings into a robust publication that covers all things Taylor, taking readers inside the Taylor factory for the inside scoop on our latest guitar developments and out into the world to connect with Taylor players, dealers and others who make up the vibrant, extended Taylor community. From stories about sourcing wood to guitar care tips to Q&A’s with Bob, we strive to share our passion for making and playing great guitars and to chronicle yours.
